Ryan Gosling has treated his pet dog a mohawk haircut to help him beat the summer heat.
Gosling showed off his newly-shorn pooch, George, during an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, insisting, "He's more interesting than I am."
George stirred up applause from the audience as he trotted out onstage with his punky new look.
Explaining the special do, Gosling said, "He insists on it… Ten years ago I shaved him a mohawk, just for the summer, and then every time it started to grow out, he turned into a total jerk. And then I shaved it back and he turned into a nice guy again."
The dog stayed by the actor's side throughout the entire interview, munching on pieces of apple.
Ryan can be seen next in Crazy, Stupid, Love opening July 29.
